Tsuzumi: One Earth Tour
“Superlatives don’t really exist to convey the primal power and bravura beauty of Kodo.” Chicago Tribune
In this new production, Kodo looks back at its impressive 40-year history and forward to the next chapter of breathtaking performance. Rigorously trained on the rugged, windswept island of Sado in the Sea of Japan, the soul-stirring taiko drummers bring a youthful joy to their unstoppably energetic, intricately designed and meticulously choreographed displays. The program features signature pieces O-daiko, Yatai-bayashi, Zoku and the popular Monochrome by the late composer Maki Ishii, and new compositions by the next generation of taiko creators.
